The documents functionality provides a way for the school to attach and group external files to a student’s account. This could be used for SEN documents, school reports, letters home, exam results or anything else you’d like to attach to a student’d record.

There are 2 types of document that can be attached to users accounts.


A linked document is one that is attached to a single users account. This would be used for something like a students school report where each student receives a completely different file.


A reference document is one that is “shared” between multiple students. This would be used for something like a school letter to parents where the content is exactly the same for everyone.


When a document is attached to a student it will be visible to users based on the configuration of the selected sub category. This could mean that it’s visible to the student, all of their parental responsibility contacts and the schools staff. Bear this in mind before attaching a document.
